hospital’s charity appeal.

The women of Haughley’s WI got together at the weekend to raise money for Ipswich Hospital’s “Bras for Africa” campaign.

Between 200-300 bras were donated in just two hours on Saturday at the group’s Easter cake stall in the Maxwell Charnley Room.

The bras will be sold in Africa, with the money 
they raise spent on the care of women with breast 
cancer.

Venessa Herbert, 62, who has been a WI member for 20 years, said it was a great 
event.

She added: “There was a great number of bras donated, it all went very well.

“It’s important to raise awareness of cancer.

“It was a novel idea but it worked.

“It is important for us to hold this type of event.”

More than £100 was raised for the WI’s own funds from a cake sale.
